Amir Khan is going to donate his £30k golden shorts to Pakistan so that it can rebuild the Peshawar school. Khan, a British citizen, is of Pakistani origin. A suicide attack on the Army School in Peshawar killed 141 people. Most of the casualties were children. Taliban militants opened random fire on children who had gathered in the auditorium for an event. They also fired randomly on children in their classrooms. When international journalists went to the scene of the attack, one freelance journalist said there were "horror movie scenes" in the places where Taliban extremists slaughtered 132 children.

"We were led up some steps into the main auditorium, there was blood running all the way up the steps and we thought that was pretty gruesome but it didn't prepare us for what was inside," ABC News earlier quoted the journalist, "We were walking around and there were dark, dried pools of blood, body parts, books, glasses, remnants of I don't know what, it felt like it was a horror movie scene." She also said that it did not "feel real."

The £30,000 pair of shorts, which Khan is donating for the rebuilding of the school, was worn by the British boxer in his match against Devon Alexander. Khan, who won the match in points, said that it was "just very sad" to see innocent children being killed. The golden pair of shorts has a waistband made from 24-carat gold threading. BBC reported that Khan expressed his desire to donate the shorts also for strengthening security around Peshawar.

Khan, who experienced parenthood for the first time in May when his daughter was born, sad that he could imagine what the parents of the attacked children were going through. He said that people in England were lucky to have good security. So, he will be able to send his little girl to school and know that she will be fine, he said. However, Khan said that it would not be possible in Pakistan. It is sad to know that Pakistani parents are not sure if their children will come back after they send their children outside the house, Khan said.
